Website Re-organization

Hi folks - just a quick message to say that the blog now comes under the parent site. The site design is "simply functional" so please do not expect anything like the DataSwallow ver4.0 GUI just yet :-)

Namco Official Guide Book

Been a while since the last update ;^_^ Anyhow, here are some photos I took of the Official Guide Book. I got this from eBay and I've been wanting to own it for aaaaaaggess!

Some photos are attached - which got me thinking: there's *plenty* of Japanese in the guide and scope for us to translate this too once the game translation is 100% complete - what do you think?

Namco has not forgotten AC3

Namco have not forgotten about Ace Combat 3 - they know there are a contingent of fans out there who love the game and would just love to see a remake (oh, and in English!).

Did you know that a fairly recent game, the Xbox 360 title "Ridge Racer 6", contained a lot of references to the game? Does anyone else know of any other Namco games which reference AC3?

I recently acquired the official Namco Japanese AC3 guide book from eBay, it's something I have wanted to get hold of for a looong time. I will post highlights from the guide in my next post.

Here we are, second AC3 book, first one not made by NAMCO. Can it measure up to the S-Rank achieved by the Official Guide Book? Well, yes in some respects and no in others. Let's get down to business...

A Hello from the Co-founder

Hi All, IcemanUK here (thats my forum handle), co-founder of this project and a member of the Front Mission 5 Translation Team. I'm really excited about this translation project. We're planning on having a translation for the Append Disc soon which should further illuminate this fascinating sci-fi world of Ace Combat 3. Another plan is to produce a full website for the project with a more structured layout. Part of that idea is to produce a website using flash that simulates the Data Swallow 4.0 GUI. Are you a flash wizard looking for somewhere to make a splash and show off your talents? Then this project may be it. Please contact me at about it.

In the near future, I will be carrying the torch for the project for a while and I hope to make regular and interesting updates to the blog.

In the meantime, please tell anyone interested about the project - blog about it and mention it on forums and in forum signitures.

Thank you, signing off,
